Episode 21 - Lynette M. Smith - Copyeditor, Author of How to Write Heartfelt Letters to Treasure

February 15, 2016

Lynette M. Smith owns and operates All My Best and Good Ways to Write, a business and nonfiction copyediting service founded in 2004. She holds memberships in Publishers & Writers of San Diego, as well as San Diego Professional Editors Network. Personally and professionally, Lynette abides by The Four Agreements:* 

  • Be impeccable with your word.

  • Don't take anything personally.

  • Don't make assumptions.

  • Always do your best.


Whenever Lynette is asked why she was moved to establish Good Ways to Write, she tells this story:

When our son Byron married Rachael in 2008, they created lasting memories that touched our hearts: They each wrote a loving letter to their own parents, describing not only their fondest childhood memories but also the values, life lessons, and ideals they would bring to their marriage. At the wedding rehearsal, one at a time, they presented their letters to their parents. Both sets of parents, as well as all others present, were deeply moved. We will always treasure our loving memento.

Byron's_Letter,_Facing_L-72dpi-144pxW-caInspired by Byron and Rachael's original idea, Lynette has created this website and its tools and products to help you write your own treasured personal letters and business communications, in furtherance of her life's purpose:


The Big, Achievable Goal

To get millions of people worldwide to write heartfelt letters of appreciation so they can establish, enhance, and even rebuild their relationships and thus change their world.
